Does It Matter If You Lose Weight Fast Or Slow?


According to UPI, a new study found that when it comes to weight loss, it's not how quickly you lose it, it's how much you lose. People who lose weight more rapidly have better initial overall health outcomes, but the net gains don't last. This is according to a study published in the 'Journal of Obesity.' There's also a risk of gallstones with faster weight loss, so the study's researchers suggest "trying to lose weight at the recommended one to two pounds per week" as "the safer option."

  • White House Doctor Says Trump Needs to Fix His Unhealthy Diet And Lose Weight

    On Tuesday, White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson said in a briefing with the media that Trump "would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates." According to Jackson, Trump should aim to lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year by adjusting his diet and exercise habits. President Donald Trump asked the White House doctor to perform a cognitive exam during his physical last week, despite the doctor's determination that such testing wasn't necessary. "I have no concerns about his cognitive ability," Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters. He said the testing was conducted at the President's wishes, and the results were normal. White House said that tests for mental acuity would not be included. The question arose after a week of speculation about Trump's mental fitness for office, spurred by the publication of a damaging book that suggested Trump's own aides worry about his stability. Later, Trump attempted to clarify matters by tweeting he was a "very stable genius." The President himself decided what to make public, in accordance with medical privacy rules. He's been unwilling in the past to disclose information that candidates and presidents typically reveal, such as his tax returns. But during the 2016 campaign he did authorize his personal doctor to release some medical information.

  • "Cheat Days" Could Help You Lose More Weight

    A new study done by the University of Tasmania in Australia claims that taking breaks while dieting helps shed more pounds. The Huffington Post explains that this research could help people who "struggle to commit to a new way of eating." Researchers say that adding in "cheat days" can combat “adaptive thermogenesis” ― when the body reacts "to caloric restriction as if it were starving," which causes your metabolism to slow down. According to The Huff Post, the study showed that more casual dieters shed about 31 pounds, as opposed to 20 pounds lost by more consistent dieters.

  • What Are The Risks Of "Yo-Yo" Dieting?

    Yo-yo is a diet that can make a person lose or gain weight repeatedly. A new study reports that these diets are not only ridiculously unhealthy, but that they can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease in women. The study shows that repeatedly losing and gaining as little as 10 pounds can be bad for a woman’s heart even if she stays within the normal BMI range. According to Science News, yo-yo dieters of a healthy weight were three times as likely to die of cardiac death than women who remained a stable weight, no matter what weight.
